Stamp of the Week is a new feature here at Uniko.
It is one I have been wanting to do for some time & with the results of the recent survey I did it is something 69% of you wanted too. Even though every other month the DT and I revisit a previously released set, there are MANY more clear stamp sets that deserve some LOVE!
So, what is stamp of the week?
Well, each week I will be focusing on a different stamp set on this the Uniko website blog, I will be featuring a variety of cards, tags, projects and hopefully videos. The stamp of the week will be the main focus but I will also be showing how it pairs with other products from Uniko & other reputable companies. Along with all that the featured stamp set will be available in store at a discounted price for that week only.
This weeks stamp of the week – Pure Florals: Poinsettia
As we are nearing the end of the week I have 2 cards to share with you using this set, both of which were really quick to make. Today I have focused on a couple of the sentiments in the set along with using only a section of the poinsettia. Just because it is a large outline flower, which may daunt you if you are not one for colouring, you can just use a small section of the flower.
For my first card I focused on the sentiment, PEACE * LOVE * JOY and paired it with one of my new Pretty Pink Posh mini tags & some NBUS Stampin’ Up! Christmas Greetings dies.
The current sketch over at CAS(E) this sketch! seen HERE and below was perfect for showcasing a sentiment from the set & a small section of the poinsettia. I wanted the sentiment to be the focus of the card and using the peace die cut in sparkle card emphasises this.
I am LOVING the mini tags from Pretty Pink Posh, I especially like the size and the stitching detail. I decided not to add any further embellishment to the card, as I feel the sparkle of the die cut is enough impact.
My next card is a little out of my comfort zone, in the fact that I have used designer paper! I very rarely use patterned papers even though I love pattern and colour. I think the reason is they daunt my love of CAS and I find it hard to keep the card CAS when I use them.
With using such a bright colour of DP with the polka dot pattern, plus the poinsettia flower being detailed too I kept my use of colour to a minimum, stamping the sentiment & poinsettia in black & adding a small splash of gold. As you can see I only cut a small section of the poinsettia out, but it still keeps its form nicely. The sentiment is 2 stamps, but I masked & stamped ‘The Magic Of Christmas’ part to create a 3 lined sentiment.
That’s all I have today, but I will be back tomorrow with the last of my projects using this set as Stamp Of The Week. This also means that if you want to purchase the set at the discounted price HERE you have until midnight 18th October BST to do so!
Enjoy your weekend!
